Originally the "Bricklayers Arms" the premises was purchased by Rigdens brewery with other property for 3,500 in 1887.

The building was rebuilt in 1888 at a cost of 1,086 but burnt down in 1907 and was rebuilt again for 867. After the second rebuilding, the name was the "Rising Sun."

In March 1915 the Licensee was cautioned by the Chief Constable for serving soldiers with excessive quantities of drink.

In October 1975 the brewery Secretary took over the licence but the premises remained closed and was not asked for renewed in February 1980.

 

From the Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald, Saturday 26 October, 1889.

A WIFE BEATER.

William, Taylor was charged with assaulting his wife, Jane Elizibeth Florence Taylor.

Prisoner pleaded guilty.

Prosecutrix stated that her husband seized her by the throat, and bit her. He had shamefully and cruelly ill-treated her for the last ten years, during which time she had wholly and solely kept him by carrying on a public-house (the "Rising Sun," Sturry Road). Defendant was vary much addicted to drink, and she had had to shut herself up to get out of his way. She was suffering from a bad leg, and the treatment she received was killing her by inches. Her husband was a tailor by trade.

Prisoner said he was very sorry for what he had done.

The Chairman said prisoner had pleaded guilty to a most cowardly and aggravated assault, and he would be sentenced to three months' hard labour, and at the expiration of that term to be bound over to keep the peace for six months.
